I stumbled on this recipe by accident and boy, am I glad I did! While grocery shopping I saw the tall gorgeously red stalks of rhubarb and couldn't resist grabbing a handful. My hubby was out of town for a while and I decided to send him a rhubarb and strawberry crumble (also delicious but alas I forgot to take pictures of the process! Another time...). Afterward I had leftover rhubarb and with an upcoming beach picnic lunch with a friend, searched for a new recipe, settling on this one.
The following recipe is my new favorite. I just made it last week and already want to prepare it again! Real Simple never fails. Here is the recipe, enough pleasantries, let's get started!
If you haven't yet downloaded the (free!) Whole Foods app, go do it!! They have amazing recipes. One of our favorites is a buckwheat grout and old fashioned oats recipe for a yummy, homey tasting oatmeal, perfect for a rainy morning (like we had today). The official Whole Foods name of the recipe for you to use is Apple-scented Breakfast Oatmeal and Buckwheat.
The coffee shop I work at in Hawaii makes a yummy, heals every ailment, powerful drink called Ginger Tonic and I've been drinking it a lot recently. The bakers gave me a hint at how easy it was and spilled the secret (well, not so secret), combo and today I tried my own batch! My disclaimer is that I don't actually know the proper ratios so my version won't be quite as good as theirs until I figure out the perfect balance. But you can make this and adjust the sweetness/gingeriness to your liking.
Yet another "by accident" recipe that has become one of my favorites! For a friend's party I made a dip which I saw on Food Network that sounds yummy and healthy. Fast forward a few days to a craving I was having for chicken salad and my desire to not use mayonnaise. I opened my fridge and there, staring up at me, was some leftover dip (which has the consistency of hummus); I figured it wouldn't hurt to try it as my healthy mayo. And guess what? YUM!!
The title sounds simple enough, doesn't it? I was watching this show called A Chef's Life on pbs online. The chef and her mom made this classic southern dish. Seeing as it's still cooler here, warm broth with chicken cooked until falling off the bone was just what my belly needed!
Thanks to a friend who learned her son is allergic to fish, we were blessed with some frozen salmon and tilapia. We used the mild tilapia in this classic fun meal!
This soup has nothing too crazy in it but it was a perfect, thin broth soup for an early dinner.
Yep! That's how we're rolling today. I have been a bit under the weather but this morning my kids requested "porridge" which translates into fancy oatmeal...drizzle maple syrup, butter, raisins, side of peanut butter or almond butter.
Surely the extra toppings remove any doubt of the humble cooking style...
Our gas oven's igniter is broken and won't even be looked at for a week. So we are getting creative using our electric griddle, crockpot, percolator, vitamix, juicer and toaster.
